to a new fox news poll, president obama leads romney by five points among likely voters nationwide. 48% to 43%. catch that, the fox poll. highly significant there. let's go right now to howard on this question. it looks to me like this divorce papers are pretty much out there right now. all that you hear now is romney doesn't really want to be stuck in that little basement where they cut medicare. >> well, mitt romney was on the campaign trail today saying, i have a little secret, i'm going to win pennsylvania. okay. he's not going to win pennsylvania. >> it's the oldest state in the union. >> he's not going to win pennsylvania with paul ryan's profile on medicare or budget cutting or anything else. so if mitt romney is serious about making a play in pennsylvania, that just underscores how inconvenient paul ryan has become. look, mitt romney did not pick paul ryan because of paul ryan's medicare or budget programs. he picked paul ryan because of his youthfulness, because of the cultural appeal, because of what paul ryan himself calls the deer hunter catholic that he is, okay? that migh
't trust polls. right fox news. >> the latest fox news polls give president obama an edge in three key swing states. he's up 5 in florida, 7 in ohio and 7 in virginia. but that is with all likely voters. once you isolate voters extremely interested in the election the race is much closer. >> stephen: yes. much closer among the extremely interested. and romney's tied when you focus on the index pressably intrigued. and he's up, he's up by 2 points when you count only voters who are sigh cotically engaged. (applause) the point is the point is the polls showing romney behind have to be wrong. >> we have a bunch of polls, gallup, pew and-- and uh-- the cnn which either oversampled democrats or at least in the case of cnn, appear to grossly underestimate the percentage of independents. >> there is really lousy sampling in these polls. >> i don't believe them because i think the sampling is probably skewed. >> it is clear that many of these polls are oversampling. >> the polls are skewed. >> i don't believe them. you can go through all the scientific goobledygook you like, i done believe the

's a slew of national and swing state polls that show president obama building a small lead against republican rival mitt romney. joining me now, tameka simms, and lynn sweet. good afternoon to both of you ladies. >> hello. >> good afternoon. >> let's take a quick look at the polling here. president obama up by five in a fox news poll, six in a bloomberg poll, three in a politico poll, seven points in a "national journal" poll. why do you think that the president is edging out mitt romney in these polls, when the economic recovery has been so slow? >> well, it's a fairly complicated answer, and a lot of it has to do with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically gotten used to the economy as the status quo. >> today in his weekly web address, lynn, the president
: as you know, president obama is leading in a lot of national polls. there are some new numbers showing his approval rating today is exactly what it was two years ago. the midterm elections, the democrats losing the house, six seats in the senate. charles payne, lori rothman come on whether this could be the repeat we are looking at. >> it could be. you are absolutely right. i am just not sure. that's a bad thing. they were out in the streets. they were out in the grass and making noise. people were understanding. somehow, we have fallen asleep since then. the tea party became a political party, which was a huge mistake. despite all the terrible economic news we have gone this weekend, really, it is a deafening silence on main street. >> did you see honey boo boo leiby sister? >> i did not. neil: that was then and this is the presidential approval now. it's a very different world. >> unfortunately, it has been since that data point that we are comparing that to. two additional years of lackluster growth, frustrating unemployment and people have gotten used to the new normal. look at the
supporters you can drop your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll in michigan has mr. obama up by four in michigan. which is a lot less than the 12-point and 14-point leads the president has also had in michigan polls there this month. but for what it's worth, i should also tell you we have national polls. for the national polls mitt romney supporters it's time for the finger vision. president obama up by five points. that's the fox news poll. the gallup dayly tracking poll had been quite close recently. now gallup shows president obama up by six. even really quite ostentatiously republican leaning rasmussen poll gives president obama a one-point advantage nationally. basically across the board in the polls that matter, in the states that matter, the obama campaign is ahead. things could change. we've got the debate starting next week. it's a long way to go, it's politics. anything could happen. right now the obama campaign is solidly and consistently ahead. tactically what that means is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. s
can return to the roots of america. show us how you do it. i am shocked that obama is polling better than mitt romney on the economy. neil: is that obama still? >> it is the phrase du jour. i want to hear him be loud about this. spending cuts and higher taxes, they say that this will drive us into a full recession if they don't resolve it. neil: bearer scaring everyone is a party, they are scaring everyone. >> they should be scared. >> the bottom line is that this is not the america that became the greatest country in the world. this is not the america that will continue to be the greatest country in the world. you know, i will take people from the lowest rung and if there is income inequality, let's do this. okay? let's be smart about what we are doing. those are the people that i think all politicians are talking about. neil: don't give up on. >> people still want to be rich. all we have to do is listen to rap music. young people want to be read from a but they don't think there are a lot of avenues to do that. the. neil: he showed up against newt gingrich in a debate there and aga
polls. for the national polls mitt romney supporters it's time for the finger vision. president obama up by five points. that's the fox news poll. the gallup dayly tracking poll had been quite close recently. now gallup shows president obama up by six. even really quite ostentatiously republican leaning rasmussen poll gives president obama a one-point advantage nationally. basically across the board in the polls that matter, in the states that matter, the obama campaign is ahead. things could change. we've got the debate starting next week. it's a long way to go, it's politics. anything could happen. right now the obama campaign is solidly and consistently ahead. tactically what that means is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. since they are clearly ahead a good time to get those votes cast is right now. because thanks to early voting people are casting ballots right now. so this lead that they would in the polls can be turned into actual votes while they're still ahead even if they don't end up being this far ahead by election day. iow
voter fraud where you live, sober or not, foughterfraud@foxnews.com >>> polls showing president obama and mitt romney running neck-and-neck in some key battleground states. new numbers show major shift in eight key states where the number of registered department extras -- democrats dropping fast. >> the president: don't boo, vote. don't boo, vote. >> reporter: that often repeated call to get out the vote comes amidst precipitous decline in democratic voter registration in some swing state none more apparent than in ohio registration down by 490,000 people from four years ago. 44% in cleveland. democrats outnumber republicans more than 2-1. >> i think what we are seeing is a lot of spin and hype on the part of the obama campaign to troy -- to try to make it appear they are going to cruise to victory in ohio. 50,000 are decrease in rolls in the three largest counties. >> reporter: august study shows the democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbers republican decline by 10-1. in florida democratic registration down 4.9%. iowa down 9.5%. new hampshire 19.7%.
with president obama and mitt romney you get 6% of the vote. that is the best you have polled nationally. but the bar is set by the presidential election commission. it stands at 15%. so do you expect to get there at any point? >> well, let me state the obvious here, alex. do you hear my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? >> no. >> you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times you hear these guys. if i were just being given that six-time mention for every 100 times these guys were mentioned, you know what? i wouldn't be at 6, i'd be at 11, 18, i'd be the next president of the united states. but it is what it is. and when it comes to presidential debate commission, look. presidential debate commission are made up of republicans and democrats. they're a private organization. they're not a governmental organization. they have no interest whatsoever in seeing a third party on stage. >> all right. so since it appears wednesday night will not happen for you, after that debate there are two more. that's october 16th as well as the 23rd. might you make any
and a recent cnn poll of polls shows him ahead six points. the obama campaign launched this attack ad on thursday airing in virginia and a handful of other states and as early voting starts up in a number of states, the president framed his closing argument in a positive ad where he talks directly to the camera. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the believe that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. >> that is a message that president obama reiterated in virginia as he pushes a newly framed set of proposals. economic patriotism as he calls it, reducing oil imports and also giving tax breaks to companies that invest in the u.s. >> i assume the president is spending a lot of his time these days gettinged ready for that debate wednesday night. >> certainly in the big mush is the goin to be as he heads to nevada here in the next couple of days and will be preparing as you know his partner senator john kerry who will be filling the shoes in these mock proposals. the campaign doesn't want to talk a whole lot about the preparation. they don't re
that obama won last time. romney will win that. everyone is surprised that all of these polls are pretty much saying obama is in command of the lead. chuck talked about they lost august. one reading is that they lost the summer, the romney campaign. if you look at obama did, they did, at the start of this race was in may. that's when they started going out with tough ads and framing romney as someone who wasn't in touch with the middle class and the tax issue, him releasing his tax returns. he was always on the defensive and now he has a lot of ground to make up. gwen: is there an argument to be made that there is a policy shift going on in america's mind as well, not just a good speech or a good piece of positioning, but actually people are looking at their choices differently now? >> there are ways to think of this, not just through polling data but economic data and there is a surge of optimism. small business confidence is up. some financial market participant indexes are up. this would suggest that people are starting to feel better about this recovery. a lot of interesting questions as
, president obama gets a boost in the polls. the romney camp plays down expectations for next week's debate. some predictions. welcome to "the willis report."
at these polls overall, i think there's a little hype going on with the obama numbers. if you look at the rasmussen numbers, if you look at battleground states, he shows the race tied and if you look at a lot of these polls coming out across the country, romney and obama are tied with independents. that's a key indicator for your viewer to keep watching. if romney's tied with independents, then it's a question of the turnout model. every number i see shows republicans very enthusiastic. that shows this race continues to be tight and winnable for governor romney. >> jen, do you think this race is winnable for mitt romney? >> we're going to run in every state like we're five points down and we've always said this race was going to be close, so our message to our supporters is don't be complacent. don't rest on any polls. put your blinders on. keep focus on the playbook. we'll sleep and hopefully celebrate on november 7th. we know there's going to be twists and turns. it's a narrower path than i think we would like, but still, 38 days is a long time to go. >> she's got to say that, ri
, your internal polls for the obama campaign, do they show it like gallup, like cnn or tighter like rasmusen? >> well, we're -- >> come on. >> we're not focused internally or externally on the national polls. we're focused on seven to nine states, as i'm sure the romney team is as well. some, we're close, some we have more of a lead on. but it doesn't matter because we have 38 days to go and we need our supporters to turn out. it doesn't matter unless they cast their vote. so that's what our focus is is now. turning people out. it's already game day. early voting is happening and we need to keep our focus on november 6th. >> so, matt, what is it really about? i keep hearing, people are talking about getting the base out and that it comes down to the base. we had on one of the preachers saying it's all about the base. mitt romney needs to get the base out, but you said no, it's about those independents. those people who aren't on either side. am i saying too much to say you're saying it's not about the base? >> no, i just think people get confused with elections. they try to act like
and version is water in virginia than anyplace i have seen this year. obama is polling 49%, college was carried down to 32% among non-college whites. it underscores the changing class nature. non-college whites are no change. from 44 to 48%. there is this enormous gap. mcdonald drove to the numbers to 29%. right now obama has the edge because he has the edge nationally. in the senate race, look, we're seeing routinely, as the average 85% of the people who vote for obama are voting for the democratic senate candidate. we are moving into a parliamentary system by voters as well as by legislators. i think it is very likely that whichever candidate wins the presidential race in virginia, there party will win the senate race. >> when you're looking at the affluent voters in northern virginia, many of them are connected to the boom in public spending. that is something that shapes your perception. >> yes, but the numbers are close to national, which is different from the college whites. it is a little better. the non-college whites are a little worse. it goes back to the point where in st
to a reagan landslide. with polls now showing president obama building a lead over mitt romney in key battleground states, a democratic pollster and consultant who worked for jimmy carter says finding the right sample to survey can be tricky. >> we know from the exit polls and others, the republicans tend to respond to these polls less than oftentimes, particularly from news organizations, less than do democrats. >> in 1988, george bush managed a huge swing. gallup had michael dukakis leading by 17 points after the democratic convention, but lost to bush by 7.5%. in 1992, the incumbent president was down nine points in mid-september, tied with bill clinton by the end of october, though clinton eventually won. a former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african american, latino, and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod told fox, "public polls are widely variant in their sampling and methodology so it's hard to case when the
. >> michelle obama is encouraging young voters to get to the polls. like right now. the first lady spoke to college students in iowa friday, urging them to go into nearby early voting booths to cast their ballots. >> you got a whole month to make it happen. a whole month to vote! as i tell my children, don't procrastinate. no procrastination. make it happen. do it today. >> joining me now, political reporter for "the washington post" felicia somnez and white house correspondent for the hill, amy barnes. good morning. >> good morning. >> so, amy, i'm going to start with you. on libya, earlier this week the president said on "the view" that he thought it was an act of terrorism. why is this being perceived as such a big reversal now? >> well, i think you're seeing them respond to susan rice, as we mentioned before, and other people in the administration who initially blamed the protests and the violence on the video. now they're sort of walking it back that this is a dramatic shift. what remains to be seen is how the administration, and how team obama the campaign will handle this. so far
the presiden presidency. >>> a chilling effect. could polls showing president obama with big leads in swing states cause some voters to stay away election day? from either party? bob, these projections... they're... optimistic. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. so it can feel like you're using nothing at all. but neosporin® eczema essentials™ is different. its multi-action formula restores visibly healthier skin in 3 days. neosporin® eczema essentials™. silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to them. >> polling is very good at saying how you're going to vote. it's very bad at saying who's going to vote. >> thes

: looking at the polls, which despite everything even the conflict of the catholic church, president obama leads among catholic voters by 15%. conducted september 12th obviously eight the week after the events in benghazi >> it is a sterile conversation. romney was up about nine points one month ago. remember their reelection with governor walker? he won by seven. is a stale conversation. it is not that it would. 25 points and one month? >> obama every election campaign knows they are in trouble with catholics. individual calls are going out telling blatant bias about the president's position saying he does not support abortion. is the most extreme president on that issue this country has ever seen. lou: thank you for your voices. angry liberal bill more is added again. he hates republicans republicans, president obama we have that next. the president's confusing lack of transparency on the murder of our ambassador. comparing benghazi to watergate. author of the amateur joins us. and karl rove among our guest next week. lou: united nations on a mission to become the tax master. considering
. the rasmussen daily tracking poll today has mr. obama up by 1%, 47%, to 46% over mitt romney. in the 11 swing states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling which talking points exposed earlier this week as being heavily weighted to the democratic side. we here are putting our trust in rasmussen this year because that outfit was the most accurate polling center in 2008. american society is changing rapidly with social media dominating the lives of many citizens and bitter partisanship on both sides backed by billions of dollars. just today we learned that our pal george soros is ponying up close to $2 million to help the president. that kind of money talks. and what it says will not be complimentary to mitt romney. the governor has the economic stats on his side. but it's clear that he and paul ryan still have not convinced the casual voter that they can improve the economy. mr. romney's moment will come next wednesday in denver when he confronts mr. obama in the first debate

in the numbers for obama and the polls has actually made democrats more optimistic about the economy. >> interesting. so, the idea of who might win the election is actually affecting the question. >> it appears so. it really does. now, look, i'm actually kind of optimistic. i like to look at this glass half full. you know, you are right that there are some signs of an economic cloud ahead, but, you know, some pretty positive signs, too. you got this trillion dollars of capital on the sidelines and you have these low interest rates that i think can help growth and you mentioned housing. ali, we haven't virtually built annew housing in five years in this country. you have to think that housing will really start to pick up. >> steven moore, have you become a democrat? >> no. i actually think that, obviously, if the economy, i think, look, if mitt romney was to pull this out, i think the economy is really going to do well next year. >> for three squares like us, the gdp matters and this reading we got on gdp this week surprised some of us. mitt romney hit president obama this week about
, with obama's lead widening in the polls, how important are these debates in your view for romney? more specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almost every swing state thement opened up a significant lead outside the margin of error in most cases. if tea lex were to be held today, it would be a shock if mitt romney were to win. he has to find a way to shake up that narrative. >> one of the things we've seen in the polls is older voters moving more in the direction towards president obama, and one of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that be
campaign to pennsylvania. polls have given obama a comfortable lead. >> he wants to raise the income tax. i don't want to raise taxes on the american people. not when our economy is in the kind of trouble it's in. i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> the president stayed close to the twhiet -- white house with three fundraisers. some have already cast their ballots. most campaign watchers say early voters favor the president because of his grass root education. both candidates will use the weekend to get ready for next wednesday's debate in colorado. >>> we are learning some new details about a deadly shooting at a minneapolis business. this evening another person died. that brings the death toll to six, including the gunman. the 36-year-old shooter was fired from the company early in the morning, he came back in the afternoon, killed the owner along with others before taking his own life. two people are still in the hospital. police say they found 10,000 rounds of ammo at the shooter's house. >>> well, it is probably not even possible to imagine the grief felt by a father
important. if you can cite a poll showing the gap between romney and obama growing and obama running away with it. you can really pile on and say, wow, this race is over. look early voting has begun in more than 20 states and 25% of the vote is actually determined by those early voters. you can make a case doing precisely kirsten warned about is prejudging the outcome of this election. >> rick: conservatives are not happy with the mainstream polls. a lot of talk about the polls being weighted incorrectly for a news consumer listening to your pearls of wisdom. what would you say how they should interpret the polling that should be done right now? >> if you are curious, go to unskewed polls.com an attempt to rate the polls. fox news poll has romney down five points. it suggests romney is down. pat who is not a republican and pollster, says, look, what the media are doing is hitting hard and spending their own money and deciding to spend money on polls in virginia and ohio states where obama is clearly clobbering romney. see, he is 8 points. he miss be losing nationwide. it's not completely
out. media seems to be helping one candidate more than other. new poll asks who do national news organizations more time defending and attacking. they say 16% say the other way around. 47 say obama and attacking romney. >> when durable good orders falls and business investment cools down. 13% plunge as a mere cool down. >> rick: it sounds like the race is over and we haven't had the first debate yet? >> to be fair looking at the polls, i personally don't think it looks great for romney right now but the race could change by election day because we haven't had the debates. the media sort of wishful thinking trying to write off romney. i normally do not buy into ideas that the media is on board on one side. this is the exception. this campaign, this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things that are bad about president obama and those things that mitt romney has done wrong. >> chris: cal, why? >> why? you would have to ask why? my goodness. first of all, these polls we talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing
